MARMANOV Biography

Peter Marmanov was born in 1940 in Crimea. His father was a composer who wanted his son to be a pianist and continue the family tradition of composing. Although there were no artists in his family, he had a lot of enthusiasm for drawing at an early age and his father, wishing to encourage his son, enrolled him in a children's art school.

In 1956, Marmanov entered art school in Crimea and graduated in 1961. During these years at school he learned how to translate the city and nature onto the canvas. His five years in art school left Marmanov adept in professional art skills. He exhibited extensively in the Ukrainian regional and republican exhibitions, as well as in Moscow exhibitions. In 1971, Marmanov became a member of the Union of Artists of the USSR.

Peter Marmanov's works have been purchased by the Russian Ministry of Culture and are on permanent exhibition at museums in the former Soviet Union. His works hang in both public and private collections, and galleries around the world.
